The 1932 suicide note of Eastman Kodak founder and roll film inventor, George Kodak.
“On the evening of March 14, Eastman, gathered a group of his friends at his home in order to witness a change of his will. Eastman was 77 years of age, and for the past few years had seen his health decline rapidly… Later that evening, with the task complete, he asked his friends to leave and retired to his bedroom where, moments later, he was found dead with a gunshot wound to his chest.”
The note reads: To my friends. My work is done. Why wait?
God, I cant stop thinking about him…
“Let’s take it slow, I dont want to move too fast. I don’t just want to make love, I want to make love last…”

Louis Garrel…yes please!
And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened.
